I was on bed rest starting right at 30 weeks too with my first. My doctor kept warning me to slow down and take it easy, but I was so nervous and anxious for my little one and planning things out that I didn't listen. I started having preterm labor at 28 weeks, they were able to stop it and I was told to slow down. I still went to work, took care of the house, walked the dogs, etc...didn't slow down. I ended up with high blood pressure and on bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy (I delivered at 38 weeks). Things got better as I got further along, but I didn't get off bed rest, my pre term labor just eased up. I too was on the meds to stop the labor. It's very boring, but I used the time in bed to catch up on things I had been missing while preparing for my little one. I read a lot, catched up with a lot of my friends, wrote letters to family and napped. That was one nice thing about being on bed rest, I was rested up for the birth. It's hard to lie down and watch everything happen around you, it can be boring and you can feel useless, but you have the most important job of all...growing and protecting that little one. Just keep doing what you are doing, get your rest, watch some movies, read and just think about that little one and it will all be worth while. :o) Good luck!!!
